Valtronic announces that it has opened an office in the acclaimed École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) Innovation Park, located in Switzerland, as part of its Innovation Initiative. Valtronic innovates and manufactures miniaturized electronic products as well as complex mechatronic systems for their trusted medical device partners.
Valtronic’s office will include business development and innovation engineers, and space for Ph.D. students and young researchers to work, as well as the group’s C-Suite. As part of their role, the innovation engineers will deal with startup projects and early stage programs. Additionally, it will allow access to all EPFL laboratories, libraries, classes and more.
EPFL is Europe’s most cosmopolitan technical university with students, professors and staff from more than 120 nations. A dynamic environment that is open to Switzerland and the world, EPFL is centered on three missions: teaching, research and technology transfer. EPFL works together with an extensive network of partners including other universities and institutes of technology, developing and emerging countries, secondary schools and colleges, industry and economy, political circles, and the general public to bring about real impact for society. Integrated into the heart of a scientific community made up of 300 laboratories and more than 10,000 students, the companies in the park are part of a dynamic campus that is a unique environment for exchanging ideas and knowledge.
“We are excited that with Valtronic a leader in MedTech innovation and manufacturing in Switzerland has joined the network on campus, thus further strengthening the partnership between academia and industry”, said Adrienne Corboud Fumagalli, EPFL Vice President for Innovation and Technology Transfer.
“Valtronic is proud to be part of this innovative network,” said Valtronic CEO Dr. Rainer Platz. “We believe the EPFL Innovation Park not only helps Switzerland affirm its position as a global leader but also helps Valtronic mark its place as an innovation leader within the medical device industry.”
